http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hugh_Lawson_White

Senator Hugh Lawson White of Tennessee had some staying power!

By the late 1830s, Jackson's allies had gained control of the Tennessee state legislature. After White refused their demand that he vote for the Subtreasury Bill, he was forced to resign on January 13, 1940.

1825-1940, 115 years.  Nobody is ever gonna top that.

This is according to Wiki.  So it must be right.  Smiley

And he died in 1840. So we had a zombie senator!

I know the culture of Hollywood leans liberal so I boycott most movies unless one of the actors has publicly come out as a pot-smoking libertarian.

A Hybrid of Pat Buchanan and Bob Dylan.

Yes, yes, I went from supporting Rand Paul to John Kasich to briefly flirting with Trump to settling on Cruz. Laugh at my fickleness all you want.
